I do not need a scheule C

What kind of income document(s) have you entered?   Did you enter a 1099NEC  or  1099Misc?

I do not need a scheule C

Here's the general procedure for viewing the forms list and deleting unwanted forms, schedules, and worksheets in TurboTax Online: 

  • In the left menu, select Tax Tools and then Tools.
  • In the pop-up window Tools Center, choose Delete a form.
  • Select Delete next to the form/schedule/worksheet in the list and follow the instructions.

That said, why do you think you don't need schedule C?  

Although it may be news to you that you “have a business” (and most of the other people who get their first 1099-MISC); The IRS considers anything on a form 1099-NEC to be self employment income. Enter the 1099 income, at Other Common income / income from a 1099-NEC . TurboTax (TT) will complete Schedule C  for you and allow you to deduct any expenses associated with this income. You'll also have to pay self employment tax (social security & Medicare) on any profits greater than $432. These types of payments are frequently done this way. Your "employer" is not the only one.

The IRS also considers undocumented cash income (no W-2 or 1099), for work performed, to be self employment income.
